Hey Skully !!!

 

Thanks heaps for those shots, brought back pleasant memories of a flight I did 

in Feb 82, Business class on this magnificent aircraft.

 

Perth-HongKong-Perth.

 

Allow me to share with you 4 shots (apologies for the scratchy colour slide scans) that I took on this flight.

I can still taste the lobster ( West Australian of course !!) and the Bollinger. (sigh !)

 

 

About to board at Perth(aerobridges ? whats that)

Aharon, I'm just using the default bus panel CS has it aliased to for now.

The only thing I've modded on it so far are the FSX RB211 sounds I found here at the Avsim library

Gentlemen,

 

Thanks for your kind comments. The resize of the scans has

resulted in a loss of definition, but in case your interested, I can read from the original scanned

panel shot these facts......

 

31020 ft.....................mach .831 on the left... mach .838 on the right ( different pitot source maybe ? )

Hdg 340....................154nm NW of the Brunei VOR.

 

I was lucky in having the jump seat From T/O Brunei, till landing at KaiTak.

Which was a tragedy (not) as I missed the second bottle of Bollinger !!!

 

 

Cheers
